LMS with Shaun Wilde

Solving Payroll & HR Workforce Challenges with LMS – with Shaun Wilde, #07

LMS ThumbnailIn today’s fast-paced work environment, it has become essential for businesses to keep teams up to speed with the latest trends and methods but, in payroll, with everything else to manage, how can you possibly find the time to train your team effectively?  This is where LMS can help.

In this episode of The Payroll Podcast, Nick Day speaks with Shaun Wilde, CEO of Think Learning, a leading Learning Management Systems (LMS) platform provider.

If you are a payroll manager who is too overworked to be able to commit additional time and resources to train and upskill your existing teams, then LMS could be the solution.
Shaun has recently been responsible for leading the scale-up of ‘Think Associates’ to its new business name of ‘Think Learning’ with a vision to empower organisations to create safer and better places to work through the implementation of Totara Learn and e-learning services.

Shaun boasts decades of experience helping clients to develop consistent learning approaches that have helped businesses to improve training analysis, engagement, career development, reporting and compliance while reducing organisational risk.

With the recent introduction of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) and with payroll and HR compliance and processes changing at an ever-increasing pace, this may be the perfect time to understand how and why LMS solutions are now more popular than ever! Shaun helps listeners to understand how LMS platforms can both accelerate change and support organisations to engage their workforce in learning and development.

Shaun explains how LMS solutions can improve reporting, security, analytics, compliance, HR processes, onboarding, inductions, training, governance, performance appraisals, leadership programs and even health and safety.

Like any implementation project, Shaun shares his vast experience in project management methodologies, data cleansing, engagement and best practice processes to ensure successful outcomes are achieved. We also discover more about Shaun’s love of OCR (Obstacle Course Racing), his experience as a choir boy and as a junior army team kayak champion and why he thinks, on the whole, humans are completely bonkers!

If you want to find out more about how technology such as learning management systems can affect your world, then this is the payroll podcast episode for you.

Wellness and Working Well by becoming “Super-Human” – with Hari Kalymnios. #04

Working Well Hari Kalymnios ThumbnailHari Kalymnios is a wellness expert and author of three thought-jarring books – “The Thought Gym”, “The Super Journal” and more recently, “Working Well“.

With Health Awareness month upon us, I felt that this would be a great time to release this podcast as I get to witness first-hand just how stressed payroll and HR professionals are right now and I appreciate the pressures you are facing. In fact, the reality is that across all professions of the industry many employees are working under increased levels of stress.

We are in the grip of a stress epidemic.

However, there is hope! In this episode of the Payroll Podcast, Hari offers efficient and practical steps for changing habitual patterns that may be affecting our state of wellbeing. You will hear about several strategies you can implement right not to improve your wellness.

As our lives get busier and busier, boundaries between work and leisure blur and we spend less time thinking about what we’re putting our bodies through. If you work in payroll or HR, you are probably reading this and thinking “that’s me”!

The reality is that this fast-living is resulting in a pandemic of ‘ill-being’: from general weariness and ‘feeling under the weather’ to prolonged bouts of sickness, lethargy and sharp increases in stress, depression and mental health issues. Cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes and chronic lung diseases are now the four main causes of non-communicable disease death, making up around 70% of all deaths (around 17 million) across the world each year. By the year 2030, the figure will top 24 million.

The way we’re working isn’t working.

Hari teaches listeners on the Payroll Podcast how they can “unlock your inner superhuman” and be “on point” – mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually so you can be the best payroller, HR leader, entrepreneur, employee, colleague, parent, friend or human that you can be. To do this Hari shows you how first, you can need become the master of yourself.

Changing your thinking is the first step towards any change – especially if you want to achieve high performance.

Hari has trained corporates and entrepreneurs across the world to help them achieve improved focus, productivity, resilience, relationships, happiness, health, vitality and energy.
Here is what Phil James (https://twitter.com/philjms), CEO of the Institute of Leadership & Management had to say about Hari’s most recent book, “Working Well“:

“It’s time we took ourselves, that is our mind and bodies more seriously. Working Well asks us to do just that. Read this book, crease its pages, wear it out, share it and most of all act. Do something different and start working well today.”

Hari puts it like this – “train the mind…and the rest will follow”.
